Vectrus

Vectrus Rope

Application: Running backs, halyards and control lines.

Construction: 100% Vectran (LCP-Liquid Crystal Polymer) Single Braid. Maxijacket High Performance (HP) coated to enhance abrasion reisistance.

Vectrus has a 12-strand Vectran construction, coupled with an integral Maxijacket HP coating, is designed to work in place of Spectra-based lines that don't meet low-creep demands. Eliminates low stretch, and has a self-supporting strand twist level that maximizes longevity. It has no moisture gain and negligible creep. Vectrus exhibits outstanding sunlight resistance and no moisture weight gain-at a fraction of the weight of wire.

Specific Gravity: 1.40

Maxijacket™ HP Coating Colors: Clear( H ) - Standard, Yellow( D ), Orange( C ), Red( A ), Green( F ), Black( G ), and Blue( E )

* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lowers the maximum working load.
** Working load is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instant changes in load up or down in excess of 10% of the rope's rated working load constitutes hazardous shock load and would void normal working load recommendation. Consult Yale Cordage for guidelines for working loads and safe use of rope.
